Considering relocation. Areas of town to avoid as a single woman with a low tolerance for crime? (please be specific re: street names)

Specifically, is there a "wrong side of the tracks," literally?

There's a few neighborhoods that are north of downtown and near the Floyd Baptist Hospital that are a bit rough, but improving. There's also a small amount of homless people around Vincennes St, but pretty harmless. I'd recommend living downtown honestly (Market St between 64 and Vincennes is a nice area), it's the part of the town that has the most going for it.

So would it be basically east of Vincennes that should be avoided? Helpful response; thank you.

My neighborhood lol. Neighbor to front arrested by fbi, was largest meth supplier in region. To the back their kids pee off the back deck, been mooned many times.

Best areas areas are east of Vincennes and North of McDonald Ln except for Main / Market historic area which is nice. Along State St outside hospital is nice. In general north central is worst.

Thank you. How close to Vincennes (to the east) can I safely get? I assume the west side of the interstate is also "off limits."

Vincennes Street itself is kind of a microcosm of problems. I'd personally say rule of thumb is east of Vincennes, north of Spring. Otherwise, West of Vincennes, south of Spring. The thing about New Albany is that it has changed a lot, and continues to change, so on a whole it's low crime, and I think wealthier people are moving in. One thing I can see is that many of the homeless around here are very old, and were probably just victims of deindustrialization and not being able to find work back in the 1970s/80s (they're in their 60s/70s now). Overall it's a cute town, and has really done a lot to pull itself out of the typical Midwestern town rut that you see if you drive through 90% Indiana.

I assume along Charlestown Road (near the industrial area) would be considered "east of Vincennes" (and thus to be avoided)?

Vincennes south of Charlestown Rd is the divide between a neighborhood similar to Clifton or Crescent Hill on the east and Portland on the west. Good areas go right up to VS on the east and rougher areas extend right up to is on the west. There are some really nice streets near the high school. There is still a scattering of low income people on the east but in general it's a nice area and improving. I live off Ctown Rd and the areas east of it are a lot nicer than west of it until you get north of McDonald LANE (not McDonald AVE).

Are you talking about the factory near Taco Bell?
